Elsecar Iron Man

Today I have been working with Fabric Lenny at Elsecar Heritage Centre, helping nearly 30 children from Barnsley make an Iron Man out of cardboard. Fantastic!

Their inital Iron Man designs were great too...!

A Garden In My Pocket: Magic Frames

I am still very busy working with children in Kirklees on the Magic Frames film project funded by First Light Movies. Over the past few months myself and Fabric Lenny have been at Ashbrow School working with children to create a short animated film celebrating the magic of planting seeds and bulbs and growing fruit and vegetables in your own garden. The children have been using the pixilation animation technique and have created their own animation set to look like the inside of a potting shed. They have developed very precise animation techniques and have been a joy to work with.

The children have also worked with musician Nick Lewis to create their very own soundtrack. Well done everyone!
